A multi-tenant retail building proposed at the northeast corner of Moorland Road and Greenfield Avenue will advance to the plan commission for further consideration next month.
The common council last week held a public hearing on a request to amend the site's building and parking offsets; landscape surface area; and lot area special characteristics, as well as variations pertaining to the two vacant nonconforming properties located at the site.
Community Development Director Dan Ertl explained that the plan commission has already vetted the architecture and uses for the property and was "favorably impressed" with the proposal for the "pivotal" site, marking the southern gateway into Brookfield.
Because the site is not very deep or large, Ertl said, variations are needed in order to accommodate the one-story, approximately 7,300-square-foot development, which would house up to three retail tenants.
No action was taken by the common council. The proposal will go to the plan commission for further discussion June 9.
